Signal Peak Increases Local Security

 

November 6, 2019



Roundup Memorial Healthcare (RMH) would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the Signal Peak Community Foundation for their continued assistance. Recently, Signal Peak Community Foundation contributed $25,995 toward Roundup Memorial Healthcare’s $36,000 Technology Security Project.

Grant funds will be used strictly to pay for part of the installation costs and equipment for the computer hardware and software security needed to protect the hospital against debilitating cyber terrorism attacks. The risk savings represented by this project are monumental. A HIPPA breech would cost the facility millions of dollars and would be crippling, if not devastating to the facility’s future viability. The required equipment will protect patient and hospital data, and represents the proactive means to safeguard the sustainability and security of the facility.

“This improvement will insure the safety of patient and hospital information, increase operational efficiency, protect sensitive information being passed between facilities, re-activate off-site access to communications, and fundamentally improve the facility for the better,” said Holly Wolff, Roundup Memorial Healthcare CEO. “The project is critical, because most of our devices will be unsupported after January 14, 2020 and do not have encryption capabilities.”

Thank you to the Signal Peak Community Foundation for your continued support which helps us improve the safety and quality of care for our patients!
